Don’t miss this epic Batman mystery from Scott Snyder, creator of AMERICAN VAMPIRE, originally published in DETECTIVE COMICS #871-877!

First, in “The Black Mirror,” a series of brutal murders pushes Batman’s detective skills to the limit and forces him to confront one of Gotham City’s oldest evils. Helpless and trapped in the deadly Mirror House, Batman must fight for his life against one of Gotham City’s oldest and most powerful evils!

Then, in a second story called “Hungry City,” the corpse of a killer whale shows up on the floor of one of Gotham City’s foremost banks. The event begins a strange and deadly mystery that will bring Batman face-to-face with the new, terrifying faces of organized crime in Gotham.

  1. I buying this even though I already have the singles. That’s how good it is. Either that or I have an addiction.

  2. Would love to buy this now but its a Christmas request so I’ll have to wait. Gonna be a loooooooooonnnnng wait!

  3. is this his entire run on Detective? I thought it was 11 issues

  4. Will go down in history as one of the best DET runs ever.

  5. Is this story fairly self contained? I haven’t been following modern Batman books bit I heard this was so good I wanna check it out. Would I be lost and confused?

  6. I’m pretty sure somebody already got me this for Christmas. I guess I have to wait a month before I can read my copy. It looks awesome!! Already have it in singles, though…

  7. Does it have the Gordon story in it?

  8. Double dipping this for sure. Jealous of all those who haven’t read this yet.

  9. Oh my god. Read this last night. This is THE Batman story of the decade.

  10. An interestring tibit:

    Before the “Drawing the Line at 2.99” policy, ‘Tec had 2 issues (871 & 872) each with an 8-page co-feature featuring the Francavilla drawn storyline where we first meet James Jr. all grown up.
    In this collection, those 2 8-parters are pushed to the begining of what would be Francavilla’s first full issue on the run, 874. So, 871 to 873 is all Jock. This was a really smart move by the collections department (or whoever it was to decide this). The art chores are separated nicely here. And then when it comes to the grand finale in 881, the meshing of the art styles has more weight to it, as everything over the year comes together into this great creative team effort by all.

    My only complaint: I wish this was in the larger page “deluxe edition” size.
